    My work is forcing everyone to join their Corp plan and they'll buy equipment for anyone who needs it and / or has hardware that is not supported. My Treo 755p is not supported and I don't want to go back to Windows Mobile.

    So what Blackberry is a good move from a Palm handheld? I'd like to stick with Sprint but this is not a deal breaker. Physical keyboard only so no Storms. Should I hold our for the 8900 series? Check out the Bold? or just get a 8800 series and move on with life.

    Thanks, Timmay

    Curve at a minimum, but a bold is much nicer. You be pleased with the stability and battery life of the blackberries. You'll be disappointed in the software when you first get it. Eventually, you may take the time to figure out how to fully use your blackberry ... then you'll never look back.

    Yes, what Lupe said. There is supposed to be a "Bold" on Sprint later this year as well as the CDMA 8900. But if you need something in the next few months on Sprint, its the Curve.

    I may go with the 8900 on T-Mobile. But I cannot believe the 8900 is not 3G. Is the Bold the only 3G GSM Blackberry?

    Any time frame for a CDMA Bold? I have til May to move to a corporate account. I'm going to see what they are going to offer me as of right now and take it from there.

    I guess i'll be on crackberry soon to get some hints and tips for the BB OS.

    Thanks, Tim

    No timeframe on a CDMA Bold - just guesstimates - but I would be surpirsed if it gets here by May. I am actually getting a 8830 I think in the mean time until more details are available. The Curve is just too small for me (and staying with a Storm on VZW is just too expensive).

    I was a longtime BB user before making the switch to WM about 16 months ago. IMO, the drawbacks to BB are the inability to tweak it at the same level you can a WM device and BB's reliance on a third party server to route e-mail

    Yes. If you are going to switch to a GSM carrier, I would recommend AT&T in any case. Otherwise the 8830 on Sprint is 3G and dual CDMA/GSM.
